Is he or she struggling to close the gap between their potential and what they are demonstrating in the classroom? Academic challenges can occur for a number of reasons including expressive/receptive language deficits and breakdowns in the auditory, visual, and neurological reflexive systems.
At Family Tree, our educational programming is highly individualized and focuses on how processing affects learning. To create a plan to address your child’s challenges, we start with a full developmental profile and identify all factors that are involved with your child’s learning difference. We look at visual and auditory development as well as attention, regulation and focus. We address academic challenges by looking at all aspects of learning and making sure those aspects are integrated before addressing higher level concerns. We assess all finite parts of our learning system and use a bottom-up approach, starting with a good foundation in order to help our top-down strategies be understood and utilized.
We avoid general terms such as “attention problem” or “hard time learning” and instead identify why your child has challenges and tailor a program to help your child be empowered during his or her school years. We do not “assist” or “supervise” your child during homework, but rather provide actual strategies that are specific to unique learning styles. All of our educational programming and reading support is provided by highly qualified, ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists.
